Why Does the Internet Think Victoria Beckham's Birthday Cake Is So Terribly Tragic?
Victoria Beckham's special-occasion treat at least looks... juicy?
OK, so it's pretty safe to assume that Victoria Beckham isn't the type of gal to throw down a bucket of chicken wings or gobble up a Cinnabon. The Internet knows this. And yet, pop-culture followers couldn't help but sink into a mild depression when the former Spice Girl posted a short clip of her birthday confection on Instagram. The cake, you see, was missing... cake.
Instead of a frosted marvel along the lines of one Kris Jenner would order from Hansen's (yum), Beckham sliced into a legit chunk of watermelon. The fruit was dolled up for the occasion, with pretty berries standing in for sugary flowers or other bakery-made flourishes.
